We frequently hear of many enrichment centres, some more often than others, especially those that have many centres under an established brand name. Ever wondered what is different among each of them? Well, for sure, they are doing good otherwise they would not be able to survive in the competitive industry! Here, we start off with a few familiar names for enrichment centres that deal mainly with the English language for the young to provide a flavour of what each of the centres focuses on.
It is not easy to teach the language, but our enrichment centres have made it very interesting to learn through educational games and stories for children. Some of them use role-play to teach creative writing, while others take a structured approach from phonics to understanding the language. As parents, we can do our part through bedtime stories for children! Find out more from How To Get Your Child to Love Reading.
